Umer Sharif was not just a veteran comedian but a legend. His death came as a shock to the world and floored the art fraternity who poured their hearts out as he was a friend, mentor, fatherly figure and a true star who brought smiles on everyone’s face and now has left the world grieving.

Actor Rubina Ashraf

He was a living example and a legend. His death came as a shock to me and I still can’t process it although he was ill. He could have grown more if stage shows had lived, but unfortunately, theatres died in our country so there was no such platform where this legend could display his abilities. The shows that he did for TVs were peanuts for him as he was for bigger and better things.

Actor Adnan Siddiqui

He must be at peace now. He made us laugh so much and in end left all of us heartbroken. I must say that he has gone to regale the heaven with his jokes.

Actor and host Faysal Quraishi

Heartbroken to receive the devastating news of our very own king of comedy. He was a true gem in our industry and nothing short of a legend amongst us. May Allah grant him the highest place in Jannah. Praying for his family during this difficult time.

Singer Shahzad Roy

If you were in his company he would never let you get sad or down. The way he used to see the world was very different from most of us and that could be witnessed in his performances. You will be missed Sir Umar Sharif.

Actor Imran Abbas

Goodbye, the King of Comedy “Umer Shareef Sahab”! Seems like the chapter of comedy is closed for good. Many will come and go but there was and will always be one and only Umer Sharif. Truly one of the biggest losses of our industry rather our entire nation.

Actor Sana Javed

He was not just a comedian who made us laugh all the time, he was a legend who taught many around the world how to maintain grace while doing comedy. There can never be another Umer Sharif as he was the one and only.

Actor and host Danish Taimoor

We can just pray for the deceased soul. They do not need our words now so what they need is our prayers and I firmly believe that if we truly love someone so we should send them duas. Artists like Umer Sharif are born in centuries. He was not just our star and a legend but he was a superstar and mentor of many. His death has left a void that can never be filled because his level of humour and comedy is unmatchable.

Actor Hira Mani

He was a legend as everyone calls him. There can be no one like him. We might forget him or maybe his anniversaries will help us recall the time spent with him but we all have to go and the only thing that stays here is how we lived here. And this is what will always be remembered. Umer Sharif Sahib lived like a legend and left his precious memories for all of us.
